Not to mention the fact that apparently up to 300 votes from the Bray area
were apparently invalidated due to the polling officer failing to correctly
mark the paper. I'm not sure what happened in the end - but if they hadn't
counted and Mildred Fox had lost by a handful of votes she'd probably have
good reason to feel agreived.
Thats one thing electronic voting will definitely fix.
